15:11:33 [HadleyBeeman]
Purpose: A Working Group's Last Call announcement is a signal that:
15:11:33 [HadleyBeeman]
•the Working Group believes that it has satisfied its relevant technical requirements (e.g., of the charter or requirements document) in the Working Draft;
15:11:33 [HadleyBeeman]
•the Working Group believes that it has satisfied significant dependencies with other groups;
15:11:33 [HadleyBeeman]
•other groups SHOULD review the document to confirm that these dependencies have been satisfied.
15:11:34 [fadmaa]
cygri: if we get no objection regarding proceeding with DCAT to the last call during tomorrow meeting we can proceed
15:11:34 [HadleyBeeman]

15:12:50 [HadleyBeeman]
Proposed: If the breakout group tomorrow does not identify any reasons for DCAT not to go to last call, then the group will request its transition to last call
15:12:53 [bhyland]
15:12:55 [fadmaa]
cygri: we can put the proposal forward that if the break-out call tomorrow don't identify any concerns that prevent proceeding DCAT to the last call, we might proceed with that
15:13:12 [TallTed]
PROPOSED: WG will accept sub-group's decision regarding request for DCAT transition (or not) to LC

TOPIC: Data Cube status
15:17:11 [Zakim]
15:17:22 [DaveReynolds]
15:18:17 [fadmaa]
DaveReynolds: I published the draft as I have it last Tuesday
15:18:35 [fadmaa]
DaveReynolds: issue 29 is a key one
15:19:43 [fadmaa]
DaveReynolds: proposed to move issue 29 to pending review as we need to keep an eye on it during last call
15:20:21 [fadmaa]
DaveReynolds: issue 30 Recommend moving to POSTPONED
15:20:52 [fadmaa]
DaveReynolds: issue 32 should remain open but doesn't affect the spec
15:21:36 [fadmaa]
DaveReynolds went through the issues as described at
15:22:39 [fadmaa]
cygri: agree that ISSUE-37 Align Data Cube with SDMX 2.1 be postponed
15:23:10 [fadmaa]
cygri: Data Cube will be aligned with SDMX 2.0 and not the latest version SDMX 2.1
15:25:04 [fadmaa]
cygri: I have few minor editorial comments mainly regarding the outline, but these are minor and can be quickly addressed
15:26:04 [fadmaa]
cygri: well-formedness criteria haven't maybe received enough interest... same for normalization algorithm in section 12
15:26:21 [fadmaa]
cygri: just wanted to highlight the risk there
15:26:28 [fadmaa]
DaveReynolds: I agree with that
15:27:30 [BenediktKaempgen]
15:27:36 [DaveReynolds]
15:28:30 [fadmaa]
sandro: would the document stand Ok with these sections removed?
15:28:53 [fadmaa]
cygri: yes for section 13
15:29:39 [fadmaa]
cygri: particularly 12.1 is at risk
15:30:06 [fadmaa]
cygri: I think with 12.1 removed the rest of the section will still make sense
15:31:37 [BenediktKaempgen]
15:31:39 [Zakim]
15:32:43 [Zakim]
15:33:04 [fadmaa]
BenediktKaempgen: I looked at the specification and it looks very good to me
15:33:10 [cygri]
DaveReynolds: Section 13 is written as independent parts, so if we find problems, we could remove only affected subsections
15:33:15 [cygri]
cygri: ok, that's great
15:33:18 [fadmaa]
BenediktKaempgen: I have few minor comments which I will send via email
15:33:38 [cygri]
15:34:06 [fadmaa]
BenediktKaempgen: based on quick review of section 13 I didn't find any logical mistake and I think the approach is very good
15:34:09 [cygri]
15:34:28 [fadmaa]
DaveReynolds: I suggest moving Data Cube to last call subject to editorial changes
15:35:20 [fadmaa]
cygri: my comments are mainly related to renaming some titles in teh table of contents and reordering some sections
15:35:55 [fadmaa]
cygri: and some otehr minor changes that will not effectively change the spec
15:36:03 [fadmaa]
15:36:22 [DaveReynolds]

15:44:06 [fadmaa]
bhyland: we still need to add links and references
15:44:34 [fadmaa]

Created ACTION-103 - Add links and cross-references to the Linked Data glossary [on Ghislain Auguste Atemezing - due 2013-03-14].
15:48:31 [bhyland]
Sandro: Email to TLR with some CC's, proposing glossary be called ld-glossary
15:48:38 [fadmaa]
bhyland: ld-glossary as a short name for the glossary?
15:49:30 [bhyland]
Question: Who has read the LD glossary?
15:49:33 [cygri]
i've read some of it.
15:49:36 [Biplav]
I have read
15:49:54 [HadleyBeeman]
i've read most of it
15:50:08 [fadmaa]
bhyland: I will send an email asking people to look at the glossary
15:50:20 [fadmaa]
bhyland: so that we can vote on it next meeting
15:50:53 [bhyland]
Agreed: By next week Ghislain will add references by next week. Bhyland will kick off thread reminding everyone in WG to read it before next Thursday so we can move to publish as a WG Note
15:51:14 [fadmaa]
TOPIC: community directory
15:51:17 [atemezin]
15:52:34 [fadmaa]
bhyland: we had a proposal to be populating the community directory based on Linked Data that people publish on their websites
15:52:41 [bhyland]
We're aiming to automate & make the Comm Directory more useful, se
15:54:19 [fadmaa]
bhyland: the idea is that people should provide few information, based on that we email RDF data to the publisher with instructions on how/where to publish it
15:54:52 [fadmaa]
bhyland: this allows the directory of linked data community to have linked data itself
15:55:16 [fadmaa]
bhyland: similar to the way Manning added linked data about the linked data book
15:56:13 [DaveReynolds]
15:56:39 [sandro]
q+ to ask about dir future
15:56:43 [DaveReynolds]
ack me
15:57:20 [fadmaa]
DaveReynolds: will the data already there be kept?
15:57:35 [fadmaa]
bhyland: yes hopefully. we are working on it
15:57:58 [sandro]
DaveReynolds: Would people be required to hold their own ttl file?
15:58:01 [sandro]
15:58:17 [sandro]
+1 DaveReynolds lots of people in the public sector have no way to host data files.
15:58:30 [fadmaa]
DaveReynolds: based on my experience you might need to host the data for people who can't host it themselves
15:59:11 [fadmaa]
bhyland: I agree
15:59:16 [HadleyBeeman]
ack sandro
15:59:16 [Zakim]
sandro, you wanted to ask about dir future
15:59:28 [fadmaa]
sandro: what will happen to the directory after the WG ends?
16:00:23 [TallTed]
TallTed has joined #gld
16:00:51 [fadmaa]
sandro: W3C community group might be formed to take care of it or it can be managed by 3stones
16:00:57 [sandro]
sandro: how about someone propose a Community Group to do this and see if it gets enough members?
16:01:33 [atemezin]
@sandro: how enough should be to start such a CG?
